This core kit includes everything you need for Wanda Sanseri's "Spell to Write and Read" (SWR) curriculum. The components work together for a unified language arts program for ages 4-6, or as remedial/reinforcement work for any age.

Based on the principles of internalizing (spelling), recognizing (reading), composing (writing) and comprehending (understanding) words, The Spell to Write and Read book uses logical progression and multi-sensory instruction to help children learn to spell. Seventy phonograms and twenty-eight spelling rules are the basis for everything else learned, and are presented in a positive manner instead of filled with exceptions to the rules. Each lesson is filled with historical and spelling notes on each concept, as well as examples, demonstrations, and activities for each new rule or phonic. This overall teacher's manual replaces Teaching Reading at Home & School as the companion to the spelling list in Wise Guide for Spelling.

The WISE Guide for Spelling contains over 2000 core words plus derivatives, divided into lots of twenty that are organized by spelling difficulty. Preliminary warm up activities and teasers, example sentences, spelling rules, and enrichments are included for each lesson. Students are to build their "own textbook", with this guide overseeing the process; lists refer back to the phonogram rules and steps in Spell to Write and Read to help provide context in teaching.

A set of 70 basic phonogram cards are provided, as well as a phonogram CD to assure proper pronunciation. The front of each card has a phonogram typed in lower case, while the back gives information, including handwriting helps. A set of small spelling rule cards includes two sided cards; a graphic on the front illustrates the spelling rule, while the back contains the actual rule, example words, and additional valuable information. Based on the 28 rules in the program.

  • Spell to Write and Read, 240 pages, softcover

    The English language is made up of 45 sounds which we spell in approximately 70 ways. A phonogram is a letter or set of letters used to represent one or more of these 45 sounds. The quickest, most natural way to learn to spell and to read the English language is to begin by learning the 70 foundational phonograms. The packet contains cards for each of these. The front of the card contains the phonogram in isolation. The back of each card gives the teacher all the information she needs to teach the phonogram. These cards should be used in conjunction with "Teaching Reading at Home".

    Many American history books refer to "The New England Primer," a textbook first introduced in Boston in 1690. Early Americans learned to read using this book and the Bible. Some estimate the annual sales at 20,000 copies. Total sales over a hundred and fifty years probably topped 3 million copies. This work helped produce a high level of literate, self-governed citizens who valued liberty and righteousness. This book includes "Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep," "The Lord's Prayer," "The Ten Commandments," a rhyming alphabet, a Bible alphabet, two catechisms, Bible questions, a dialogue between Christ, the youth and the devil, and the advice John Rogers gave his nine children before he was martyred for Christ. The text offers instruction in right living with simple sentences like: "Fear God. Tell no lies. Speak the truth." The book has been expanded with nine easy to read stories made up of ninety-nine of the most frequently used words in English.
